London-based dance punk/post disco outfit Baba Ali (made up of Baba Doherty and Nik Balchin) are releasing their sophomore album ‘Laugh Like a Bomb‘, today and to celebrate the release they have also revealed the video for the title track.
Laugh Like a Bomb finds inspiration on the duo’s view of life in two major cities, London and New York.
“We have an understanding of these two cities being a chaotic balance between endless possibility and cold ruthlessness,” Baba said. “Everyone’s here for their slice of the cake and you never know how far some will go to get it. It takes a certain level of madness, we think, to be able to endure all that the city demands and still come out smiling.”
The video was directed by Baba Ali. Check out below.
